Off-Label HBOT: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

We remain giddy about the identification of XMRV as the possible viral culprit behind chronic fatigue syndrome. What an exciting new era in CFS research. What high new hopes for all who have suffered both the pain and the disrespect too often associated with this all too real and prevalent disorder. But after a month scouring the medical literature, and hazarding a few hopeful posts, we've found scant evidence to support the use of hyperbaric oxygen to treat CFS. Slight relief from general fatigue and some potentially relevant data on HIV-related fatigue will keep us digging.

Jump to our new chronic fatigue syndrome page to learn more and to use our HyperbaricLink Evidence Index to guide your personal research.


  1. Great post. This information helps chronic fatigue doctors like me to understand what exact reason for the cause of the disease is.
